...the development of my work is throughly-documented... my work was done on 
behalf of those who suffer under the yoke of prejudice... I cannot do anything 
"behind closed doors", because, in doing so, there would arise the possibility 
that my right to present my work to those for whom it was done could be called 
into question... I'll do =nothing= that can possibly separate me from those for 
whom my work was done... K. P. Collins
People hate because they fear, and they fear because
they do not understand, and they do not understand 
because hating is less work than understanding.
